    ‘Crises of Care’

    The Laura C. Harris Symposium welcomes American critical theorist and feminist Nancy Fraser presenting “Crisis of Care.”

    Fraser is the Henry A. and Louise Loeb Professor of Philosophy and Politics at the New School for Social Research in New York and Professor II at the Centre for Gender Research at the University of Oslo. She also holds the Chair in Global Justice at the College d’etudes mondiales, Paris. A specialist in critical theory and political philosophy, Fraser’s most recent books are “Domination et anticipation: pour un renouveau de la critique, with Luc Boltanski” (2014); “Transnationalizing the Public Sphere: Nancy Fraser debates her Critics” (2014); and “Fortunes of Feminism: From State-Managed Capitalism to Neoliberal Crisis” (2013). Previous books include “Scales of Justice: Reimagining Political Space for a Globalizing World” (2008); “Adding Insult to Injury: Nancy Fraser Debates her Critics,” ed. Kevin Olson (2008); “Redistribution or Recognition? A Political-Philosophical Exchange” (2003) with Axel Honneth; “Justice Interruptus: Critical Reflections on the “Postsocialist” Condition” (1997); and “Unruly Practices: Power, Discourse, and Gender in Contemporary Social Theory” (1989). Fraser’s work has been translated into more than twenty languages and was cited twice by the Brazilian Supreme Court (in decisions upholding marriage equality and affirmative action). She is currently working on a book called “Capitalism, Crisis, Critique: A Critical Theory for the 21st Century.”

    Denison University’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program, in coordination with academic department and student organization partners, presents the 2016-2017 Laura C. Harris Symposium. The year-long symposium will host speakers and artists to discuss the theme “Making Just Democracies?” which seeks an emergence of dialogue and action that work toward democratizing subjects and objects – natures and cultures – into a collective embrace.
